  • The 5 Best Reasons To Study Abroad in London

    As many of you know, last semester I studied abroad in London, England with CIS Abroad and it was the best semester of my life. Now that I'm back and connecting with friends new and old, I can't help talking about how much I loved London and why it's such a great place to live.

  • Service Learning in South Africa

    A few days after finishing my finals at the University of Georgia I boarded a plane to Stellenbosch, South Africa for five weeks of adventure, learning, and community engagement.

On top of that, I knew that if I forgot something that couldn’t be easily replaced in Italy, I’d have to survive without it for a quarter of the year. Many websites listed things that nobody would even hesitate to bring to a foreign country—obvious things like

    What are we but a mixture... “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.” -Albert Einstein You’ve probably heard someone complain about classes they’ve had to take or material they were required to learn in school that they deem completely irrelevant in comparison to things you suspect you need to know in everyday life. Some of my favorites include some variation of the following: “I’ve been out of school for X number of years now and have still yet to need/use the Pythagorean Theorem” or “I don’t know how to apply for a loan,
